Information for Parents on Gates

Dear Parents and Carers,

Thank you for your patience this morning as we trialled our new gates system. It all went smoothly but we also want to remind you of some do’s and don’ts for the drop-offs and pick-ups.

  • Breakfast Club will no longer have the drop-off. Please use the first car-park to drop your child off – there is now a safe pathway running around the pool for your child to walk in safely.

  • The drop-off zone will now be in operation from 8.15am up to start of school day at 8.30am.

  • When using the drop-off zone, please drop off outside reception, not by the swimming pool.

  • When using the drop-off, please do not try and overtake cars, it is single lane traffic only.

  • Throughout the school day, the school will have no access. If you need to collect your child for an appointment, please come to the main pedestrian gate (in the middle of the school and Edge End Road) and press the button to speak to the school office.

  • School pedestrian gates will open at 2.55pm ready for you to walk in to go to classrooms. There will be no car access at drop-off time as per usual.

  • If you are collecting from after school club or a sports club, please also use the central pedestrian gate to access the school.


Thank you for your support as we make our school as safe as possible for the children
